Still working on photos…

September 8, 2009

We are still working on improving our photos and making progress by leaps and bounds!  Check out these pics of our Penguin Onesie:

Mr. Penguin loves to make new friends. He also loves to move around but he’s stuck on this white long-sleeved, Carter’s onesie (size 12). Help him get mobile…he loves to waddle around on a toddler’s belly as they crawl, scoot, and walk.

Hand stenciled using Tulip brand fabric paints (permanent, non-toxic, machine washable). Pre-washed, heat-set and re-washed.

For best results: Machine wash in cold with similar items. Tumble dry on low. No bleach. (Comes with cleaning instructions tag, perfect if you give Mr. Penguin as a gift!)

Working hard at better pictures…

September 7, 2009

Spent part of this evening working on taking new photos for our Etsy shop.  You be the judge:

BEFORE:

Purple Flower 2

AFTER:

Is it just us, or does after win, hands down?  It will take another day or two to finish taking and uploading all new photos for the Etsy shop but we will get there!

By the way, if you like this onesie, you can find out more about it HERE.


A few alterations to photos makes all the difference!

September 6, 2009

After reading numerous conversations about photography for Etsy, we will be revising all of our photos over the next several days.  WOW!  The few we’ve done already have made a huge visual impact!  From “blah” to “Hey, that’s cute!”

A few updates (click the names to go to the listings):

Calendar check…

August 26, 2009

I just checked the calendar and M and J Designs is officially 3 projects ahead of the Project-a-Day goal.  WooHoo!!!!  I love being ahead!  But, I have to admit, my organizational skills are lagging this week.  This morning my desk was a wreck, my craft/art closet was a disaster, and my calendar was all in my head.

I wish my camera was working (and no, I did not win the eBay auction I was following…).  I would have loved to take before/after pictures.  I sat down this evening and finished 2 full size Lugz creatures, cleaned off the desk, organized the closet, and put my calendar on paper!

Feels great to look in the closet and see the finished projects lined up and ready to go, see my fabrics and supplies sorted and organized, and to see the desk clear and ready for work.  And, of course, to see each item plotted out on my calendar…I’m keeping track of what I do each day and how far ahead or behind I am.

In other news, I joined an Etsy “Street Team” which is a group of other Etsyans that come together to help promote one another’s work.  Our group is the Sacto-Metro Etsy Street Team.

Here is a list of handy links for my shop and the Street Team:

The street team is talking about having a presence at the Sacramento 2nd Saturday Art Walk and we are discussing doing a backyard show or home show.  If anyone knows of any good venues for us at 2nd Saturday, or if you would like to host a yard or house show, please contact me or a member of the Street Team through this blog or the links above.
